Me and my family have visited this hotel as we had a wedding to attend nearby, the overall experience is good. The team member of the hotel are so co-operatives like Mr. Manjoor - room service & Mr. Mehraj Alani, Mr. Abhishek Kumar & Mr. Santoshdlibey from Clea Resturant. Thanks all, Husam

The hotel is rather isolated and about a 20 minute drive away from downtown. The staff were friendly and offered good service, but not exceptional. The single restaurant offered international food and was ok. The pool is big enough to splash around in, but that is it. There is a gym with a few cardiovascular machines and a few weights....

We asked for a quiet room but as the hotel is on a busy junction, there was little chance of that. The room service menu has a lot of variety and our room was spacious with good amenities. On the down side, the bath drain was blocked so we showered with water up to our ankles. There is no blackout...

My stay was for ten nights and i was leading a course in this hotel. The hotel is old and the meeting rooms, projector, flipcharts and tables need replacement. The staff is not helpful and for 10 days we had the same selection of food at the buffet for lunch. Rooms are ok tough.

Stayed here to write the exam at SCFHS. Really good location. Staff doesn't help you at the entrance/ lobby to carry the luggage. There was a burning smell from behind the bed board. Guess it was the LED strip. Switched it off. Otherwise a really good stay. Definitely recommend it. Always a Marriott fan. 👍🏻

For those who want a clean hotel with an upscale image to store baggage while performing business about Riyadh, this hotel fills the bill. However, it does not have a resort atmosphere or amenities. If there is a need to spend an extended time in the hotel, the amenities are not here. There is a fitness center with basic equipment...

Dear Dennis M, Thank you for your feedback about your recent stay at our hotel. With regards to the fitness center on the 4th floor it does, indeed, only cater to males as mixed usage of health club facilities is not allowed. However, we do have arrangements for a separate exercise room for our female guests on another floor. We...

Workaday hotel located adjacent to Diplomatic Area. Rooms OK if not a bit dark and walls quite thin. I could hear neighbours TV. Staff polite, breakfast fine and restaurant OK with no other close choices

The hotel if a old, over used that can use a bit of renovation but it is clean. The rooms are spacious but furniture looks really over used. Quality of food in both room service and not that great.

The hotel rooms are clean and comfortable. however, during my visit one of the security staff started acting in an over zealous manner, probably to impress his superiors, and passed his limits and boundaries of his job. Avoid lower floor rooms facing the main road and close to the reception area because in the afternoon the room it will be...
